I know JO won't care since he didn't like the show when it first started, but
Syfy Wire wrote:Fox Cancels Last Man on Earth After Four Seasons
Will Forte's comedy about life following an apocalypse-level event has come to an end. Last Man on Earth has officially shown its last episode on Earth, as Fox has canceled the show after four seasons.
...
Possibly the most frustrating thing about the show's cancellation is the fact that the fourth season ended with a cliffhanger. ...

Shows ending on cliffhangers is one my biggest pet peeves. I really think all shows should be given at least 4 episodes notice before cancellation in order to wrap things up.

It's an ages-old quandary. There's even an old Aussie ballad all about it.

Fox Cancels Last Man on Earth After Four Seasons /// I enjoyed the first season...but it went downhill from there. I find it hard to stop watching a series I started, but I was considering cancelling this show myself.

Likewise with the Keith Sutherland show Designated Survivor. First season was engaging, but after that his character became a goody two shoes caricature.

Imposters.....downhill since the Bumblers entered Mexico.

It`s Sunday morning and the talking heads on BBC are waxing lyric on Trump idiocy implications for the world - Mid-East carve-ups, US/SL/NK/China cesspooling, etc. We need a good natural calamity to focus on… a flood, an earthquake, or maybe a volcano…

I thought first season was pretty good. You might be watching TV too passively? ENGAGE the tv and as you watch it, note how you would have done some scene differently. You might get more pleasure generally.....no need if you find other activities...but then...they might benefit from the same Engagement?

With a hi-speed tungsten water-cooled bit.

I hope whoever corrupted the Altered Carbon series gets a similar treatment.

Looking forward to the next instalment of American Gods, tho'. They've even got the author onboard as co-director. And he's writing a sequel from popular demand.

Think you might have that word wrong. Ah, fibrosis. Scarring. Build up of scar tissue.

Well... You were in the navy. They used to use a lot of asbestos in the ships. My uncle and 12 of his shipmates all died from mesothelioma within a year of each other.

We don't have a second confirmation yet, so keep the coffin lid open a crack.

The funny part is that I lived in the town where the inventor of rock wool started his first plant, Alexandria, Indiana. We played in the abandoned (not cleaned up) factory.

No. Mesothelioma is aggressively metastatic.

If it's confirmed, I can only suggest Gawd starts counting his days.

Just don't mention playing in the asbestos factory. Keep that card up your sleeve. If the VA don't come through, you might be able to sue the state for not cleaning it up, or something.

And here I was going to complain that I had the most disrupted sleep ever last night. I woke up every hour after disturbingly vivid dreams. I had three episodes of sleep paralysis where I was conscious, eyes open, but still dreaming, and couldn't move.

I was thinking, "OK, brain, this is a dream. I have to move..."

I'd go so far as to say they were full-on hallucinations. They felt so real, but I knew they weren't. And there was nothing I could do to break it.

Like, one dream I said to myself, it's just a dream, wake up and move. I woke up and moved, and thought, ah good. But then I realised I was still in the dream and hadn't moved. No! I said wake up and move! And I did. But then I realised I was still in the dream. NO! {!#%@} WAKE UP AND MOVE!

It took me three tries break out. That's the longest ever. That's some Inception {!#%@}.

And I haven't even taken any drugs. I dunno what was going on, but it wasn't normal.

A stupid bird fledgling nesting in my roof fell down between the bricks and drywall right beside my head. And its fitful and frantic flapping, scrabbling and screeching all night kept freaking me out. I hope it's dead already so I can get some sleep tonight.

The most traumatising one I was in an American convenience store, and they only had Bud Light in the fridge.

I'm afraid to go back to sleep.
